to an education. the right to sing and the right to speak out. well, now, 14-year-old malala is clinging to life on her hospital ventilator as gunmen shot her when she went to school last week. what happened to her has ignited shock and grief and outrage across pakistan and the world. cnn's reza sayah joins me. this is an amazing story that has not only impacted the people in pakistan and you see the pictures of the children with the photos and the candles and the thoughts all over the world for this girl. can you give me the latest on this condition and what the doctors are saying? >> yeah, vicr. we just got back from an interview with a top government official who is monitoring the emergency care. he says that mallala is in crit ka condition and some might say she is in critical condition for four days now, and that not good. do doctors say that is not unusual, because she was shot in the head, and she had brain surgery and swell manage the brain and swelling is always a concern after brain surgery, and swelling is serious because of the swelling in the encased skull. they say the important vi
know, we have a crisis in education in this country. and, you know, by most measures and some different coordination when you look at where the united states is, you know, whether it's early childhood education or math scores for high school students, we're often not even in the top 50 any more where we used to be at the top. i think it's important to have, you know, material for young kids to be interested in, and, you know, my experience has been that kids are interested in astronauts and space and they are also interested in animals. so i put the two there together and hopefully they will be interested in this book. >> hopefully they will want to be astronauts one day like my son who is in the building today. i thought it was the most incredible moments at the democratic convention when your wife gabrielle giffords led the pledge of allegiance. it brought some people to tears. >> i was in back stage trying to watch with a lot of other people. i didn't get the full experience. it was a great moment for the people not only watching on tv but those in the stadium, but it was, you know,
it says is it's a matter of priorities. who stands with the priorities that education, young people, all that. so that's why they're using it in that way. and i think that will play into the debate tonight just the way andrea was talking about because when you get to medicare, i think that biden has a clearly different point of view. when you get to spending, when you get to taxes. i think that's what big bird was about in terms of that ad saying to especially women, look at the priorities of the republicans -- >> women don't sit at home at night worrying about big bird. i'm telling you right now. i was not up thinking about big bird. i can assure you of that. the fact they're talking about big bird makes them look very, very unserious. and no offense to my five-year-old nephew, but he is talk being big bird. mitt romney is a bully, it's just so fifth grade. we knew that obama lacked maturity before. now we know for sure that his campaign does. >> steve: all right. >> i'm glad you're not worried about that. >> steve: "the five" is stuff a popular show. thank you for joining us live. >> h
needs government. it needs government for a decent education, for job skills, for infrastructure, for environment, for climate. a lot of other americans do also. they don't really see what's coming necessarily because now it's being aggressively disgu e disguised, but i think it's very dangerous. >> in your book "civilization" you talk about the fact that cultures and civil gations are not simply about figures, about math. they're about things like compassion and human respect for other humans who may be in need. these two don't regard that, they don't even mention those kind of issues. >> if you look at what ryan over the years has proposed, he said let's balance the budget by cutting right at the knees the poorest people in our country, going after medicaid, going after the income support for the most vulnerable people in our country. now, those people don't necessarily vote. they have no voice in the political campaigns, they're not heard, but the callousness of this is really disgusting actually, and this is at the core of it. of course, that's the whole ayn rand philosophy
the middle class, looking to support education, not wanting to see the health care cuts that are in the romney/ryan plan, those policies supporting women are much more popular than mitt romney's policies, and i think that the obama team is going to kind of double down on that over the next few weeks. >> let's talk about a piece on cnn.com. you gave president obama some tips on how to win the first debate. >> right. >> writing in part, this is a great little read. you wrote my final piece of advice is most simple. stay nice. no, you're likable enough comments. no jokes about dogs on top of the car, >> reporter: marking about how rich romney is, no patronizing lecturing when he has his facts wrong. just stay nice. but looking back, i mean, you say he didn't do so badly but by all accounts the president remained calm, maybe too calm for some of his supporters, didn't engage in the attacks, didn't use the bain capital, didn't use the 47% attacks, and -- and the overwhelming consensus, of course, was that romney won. what's your advice for him for the next debate? do you stil
